There were unusual images in Biel, a few minutes after the departure of Ambris. The hall had emptied fast, and then the Ticino, the Fans took over the acoustic command. They remained in their curve, with a lid, as long as it's went, your players life. And when they had moved in after extensive Goodbye and the Tifosi were finally alone, could as a conclusion, the Jeer of rivals from Lugano not bouquet are missing.
A celebration of the departure? No, it's a tribute to the Great and Whole! "We do not celebrate the defeat, we celebrate the season," said Ambris, President Filippo Lombardi. That Ambri reached for the first time in 2014 the playoffs will be half over the disappointment.
brought Since with head of sports, Paolo Duca, and coach Luca Cereda in 2017, two today, 37 years young and the impeller of fresh air in the Club, everything is different. Ambri is for old players that come to the career end, but for youth and optimism. "We learnt a lot in the last two years, we have a Vision, a progress that should not be brought to an end", exulted Lombardi.
It was Ambri late Tuesday evening, difficult to show disappointment. The singing Fans, radiant President. But also especially proud to be the coach. Cereda spoke of the proximity of the Fans, who have found the Club again: "This is almost as important as the sportive success."
defender Samuel Guerra, a Zurich home introspective son of the Leventina, described it thus: "The last Time I experienced Ambri, was as a young Fan in the stands."
It was around felt the wardrobe Ambris but even this Overwhelming. And this will be when the view is re-focused on next season, also part of the analysis of 18/19. "Not only is the Team has learned. Also, we in the Staff are still inexperienced, have not done everything right," said Cereda.
As the browsing was an opportunity to do everything right, a lack of looseness that played perhaps a role as Ambri in the game was 1 chance – the only Time in an otherwise close series. "We were nervous, everything was new, we had to learn how the Playoff works, what it takes to Win," explained Guerra.
sense of the image and loss
the 25-Year-old is one of the figures that stand for the miracle of Ambri. Often it was only now Topskorer Dominik Kubalik and his Formation of the vagina, the speech – a line that remained in the Playoff, despite a strong Powerplay at the "right" ice hockey with five against five field players, however, much guilty.
However, Guerra: He launched his career, played in Ambri, perhaps, the qualifications of his life. And Guerra also played in the Playoff solid, state in five Games at 5-on-5 only in the case of a goal on the ice, of all things, in the case of Biel 2:1-game winner on Tuesday.
however, Guerra has decided to leave Ambri again, to Davos to return to the place where he started his NLA-career "and where now, actually, my real home," as he puts it. "And where I see opportunities on a larger leader role."
Such a loss, he also hurts Cereda: he Gladly would have kept Guerra, said the coach. This finish reminds him again to everyday life Ambris and the difficult future that lies ahead of him. It is important to confirm the 2018/19 season: "We lose important players, and we know where we came from."
"Just for the money and claims? Then, it is not good."
Cereda the Challenge, he does this with his professional trainer unaccustomed to regular, with a three-month period, terminable at any time of the contract. He did not want to use his Position for renegotiation, says Cereda: "If you're only it for the money and claims since, it is not good. For me, it's true, I'm here to get as an inexperienced Coach is a Chance."
what comes next? The question is also off the ice. The stadium issue remains acute, the perception outside of the Leventina, is that of the new ice rink just talk. Officially 2021 is to be the iconic, but obsolete Valascia past.
Lombardi said in January of the laying of the Foundation stone of the new Arena in March. It is now scarce. To hear, however, is now to be in April, with the construction started. It may be interesting.
